Hampi Sri Yantroddhaara Swami
Part – 9
The devotees having immense belief and firm faith will be on the path of Uddhaara .The Shloka of Sri Bhagavadgeeta again reminds:
"Ananyaschintayantomaam Yae Janaaha Paryupaasatae
Taeshaam Nityabhiyuktaanaam Yogakshemam Vahaamyaham."
Those who always believe in God, their welfare will be looked after by the God.
The Prahlada Baahleeka Vyasaraya - Raghavendras affection towards Sri Hari and the kind cordiality is a model to the whole world. Sri Hari in order to protect His ardent devotee and for the sake of Prahlada took the Narasimha Roopa-Avataara.Sri Krishna Paramaatma and Sri Moola RamaDevaru have fully blessed to the divine task of imparting the knowledge and the greatness of Sri Hari Vayujeevottama Saara Sarwaswa to all of us by performing the Pratishthaapana of Sri PraanaDevaru at all the places. We express our gratitude for this huge voluminous project that Sri Vyasarajaru has done with zeal and devotion. In fact it seems Sri Vyasarajaru was the only pontiff who has done the pratishthaapana of Maruti in the unique style through the length and breadth of our Punya Bhoomi Bharat. A rare Swamiji we have ever found ! This is the base of Bhakti and the foundation of Adhyatma.Our Sri Vyasarajaru is really Dhanya- Maanya Sarva Maanya.
In Gulbarga the Jilanabad Sri Siddhi Maruti of Sri Vyasarayaru is very famous.Several devotees have surrendered, performed seva and got the desired fruits in a miraculous manner. There is no barrier of caste, creed and religion to Maruti. So daily there is a line of devotees only to have the Darshana of Maruti. By mere Darshana many are benefitted. In Kannada there is a proverb that always we have to go in front of Maruti. While going our eyes see and hands are folded, thus we get his Grace. Many devotees have performed Seva and obtained their lost power of speaking, In Mantralaya (176), we have already come to know that a doctor who lost her speaking power regained by theMiracle of Maruti.
This time,here our Archaka Sri Subbanacharya came across a leprosy patient, the attack was only to the two legs and no where in the body. As a result of this unable to walk. She prayed Maruti. Sri Subbanacharya told that daily she has to come to the temple and take the Darshana of Sri Siddhi Marutiraya without fail. She agreed for this and also performed the Sankalpa for coming to the temple by the Archaka Sri Subbanacharya.
The devotee was simply in deep worry that how to come the temple of Jilanabad as she cannot walk.Maruti also did the arrangement for this. While she was thinking a Muslim Cycle Rikshawala of Jilanabad came to her rescue.He said do not worry Amma, early morning I will come to your residence and will pick up to the temple and again after Darshana I will leave you to your house.Daily she was getting the Darshana of Sri Siddhi Maruti by the help of his cycle rikshaw. This went on for several years.People laughed and said the woman has simply believed in Maruti and the cycle rikshaw wala is a fool to do this work. But they never cared. On the other hand her devotion increased and completely surrendered and prayed to Maruti. The Archaka’s wordings gave some sort of solace to the woman.
One day Sri Siddhi Marutiraya - PraanaDevaru made a big miracle in her house.She was in deep sleep early in the morning.Somebody came to her, removed her old legs and joined the new legs. She shouted that someone is removing my legs. The next moment she was surprised to see her legs. Stood on her legs. Became a normal woman. Felt extremely happy. On that she did not wait for the cycle Rikshaw to come. Praising and shouting in the early hours of that morning she came to Jilanabad by walk and knocked the doors of the Archaka Subbanacharya. Archaka was surprised to see her legs and the way in which she was standing.The cycle rikshaw man also surprised to see her legs. He said I am too fortunate that I did the work for the benefit of her legs and thus shared the blessings of Maruti with her. Archaka subbancharya opened the doors of the temple offered coconut Mangalarati to Siddhi Maruti and distributed the Prasada to her and also to the cycle rikshaw man. Now the Muslim Cycle rikshaw wala is no more and his son is now running the auto rikshaw, that family is the great devotee of Siddhi Maruti even to this day.
Even now today the older generation will remember and remind the incident to the younger generation. Thus our Sri Vyasaraya Pratishthaapita Maruti is very famous, full of promises and always helping the Devotees in one way or the other.
The siddhi Maruti is full of sanctity as the Archaka was serving previously in Mantralaya on the bank of Tungabhadra. Swami desired the Seva and invited from Mantralaya through the Rayara Mutt Pontiff Sri Suyameendrateertharu. There is saying in Sanskrit that if we have the blessings of the divine power - God Sri Hari-Vayu-Guru, the dumb will definitely get the power of speaking and the lame man will get legs and climb the mountain :
"Mookam Karoti Vaachaalam Pangum Langhayatae Girim."
Our Jilanabad Siddhi Maruti has made true. Dhanya Vyasaraya, Dhanya Mantralaya Gururaya,Dhanya Sri Suyameendra Yativarya, Dhanya Sri Subbanacharya.
